# Thread: sorry but I must to ask "troll" question I think about all the day so:

1. ## sorry but I must to ask "troll" question I think about all the day so:

1) What is the common term of this notion (a+b) in the "vertical way":
a
+
b
(2) Is there a advantages in this that other haven't?
(3a) I think about main disadvantages by this system, if the number very very long the way of writing it is a problem, and I think it can be calculated by O(n) efficiency - What is O(n)?
(3b) Is there a way to decrease O(n)?
(3c1) Is there a way to increase O(n)?
(4) Is there are connection between matrix to the notion in (1)?
(4*)I Think can be a computer program that do (4) by putting zero (no?). Is there a loss of information by this operation and it cannot be done by computer?

I'm getting the impression that this is actually a computer science question? In reference to algebra:

1) and 2) I don't see much advantage in presenting a + b in this manner. However there are a few Asian languages that are written from top to bottom. But I don't know if they represent equations in that form.

3) What do you mean by "O(n)"? I don't understand how this concept is even coming up.

4) No.

4*) By putting 0 where?

Simply means the sheet of paper you're writing on has width +- 1/8 inches.

A normal sheet of paper = 8.5 by 11 inches.
8.5 / (1/8) = 68
68 * 11 = 748 inches = 62 1/3 feet.

So you're writing on a 1/8 in. by 62 1/3 ft. sheet of paper.

Agree Dan?

-Complexity.
The number of loops, repeating, recursive, size of the input... etc.
n is the number of steps to measure the complexity of the underlined text.
4*) By putting 0 where(=In matrice)
-in the brackets.
I think to put some 0s in one line of the matrix so every digit is matrice element and after it again 0's.
The second number as well in the next line of the matrix.

So I can move from one presentation to another. No?
But
- Is there a problem of loss of information?
- Is there a way to do it by representation the number in scientific representation and vice versa n the two notation element that I mentioned?
